    In July 2020, Dr. Kathleen (Kit) Curtius joined UCSD as an Assistant Professor in the Division for Biomedical Informatics, Department of Medicine. She is also an Associate Member of the Cancer Control Program at UCSD Moores Cancer Center. She previously held a Medical Research Council Rutherford Fellowship at Barts Cancer Institute in London UK, where she began as a postdoc in Prof Trevor Graham’s Evolution and Cancer lab in 2016. Before moving to the UK, Dr. Curtius was a Gastroenterology Research Fellow in the University of Washington (UW) Department of Medicine working with Dr. John Inadomi. She received her PhD in Applied Mathematics from UW in 2015, working with advisor Dr. Georg Luebeck at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and obtained a BS in Mathematics from UCLA in 2010.

    The research aim of her interdisciplinary group, the Quantitative Cancer Control laboratory, is to improve the ability to detect and prevent cancer at the earliest stages. To achieve this, the team develops ways to use mathematical reasoning to better understand the correlations between multi-scale cancer data arising from the underlying process of somatic evolution. Their translational work requires integration with screening guideline committees, clinicians, geneticists, molecular and computational biologists, and other areas that are primed for novel informatics and modeling approaches in cancer control efforts.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
